Video #141 Modern Marvels-City Water IEPA#5224
1 DVD - .75 RTC - When we turn on a faucet, we expect clearn, pure water to flow out. We also expect our cities to provide ample water for industry, fire fighting and irrigation. Public water supply systems supply about 99% of the US population, but most of us know little about the vast networks of aqueducts, pipes and pumps that make this possible.
This video examines how clean water gets to millinos of taps in Chicago, New Yor City and Los Angeles; and it tells the colorful history of those cities' water systems. Along the way, it documents the history of public water systems worldwide, from the time of the pharaohs to moder times. Finally, we'll get a glimpse of cutting-edge modern technologies, including a new state-of-the-art desalination facility in Tampa, Florida.
